Rating #1826 - 2015.07.09 - Russell Tap Takeover @underground_edm. Amber pour, decent white head. Aroma of toffee malt, grassiness. Taste is sweet, light, refreshing. Little character beyond the aforementioned sweetness. DuffMan (10772) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2015
On tap @ The Local. Clear light Amber, compact white head. Grainy with a bit of caramel, thin and bland. Who put this on the site as a mild ale when the brewery itself calls it a cream ale? Who cares. It’s pretty featureless regardless. pictoman (1254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Poured from 341mL bottle. Clear copper colour with minimal off-white head. Some toasted caramel malt on the nose. Mild malt, nut and bread taste. Light body. cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Not bad. Pours an iced tea color. Some roasty aromas and flavors. A touch of coffee on the finish. Pretty good for a cream ale. VertBaconStrips (2422) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at Underground. K, cheating here. Took 3 sample glasses and dumped them into one glass - Apx 4-5oz. Medium amber. Everything from here on are in the light or faint category. Smellz - toasty, grains, random citrus, mostly malts. Flavz: very similar with more obvious malts and less grain. Watery was expected. A pint could be drank in three big chugs.

On tap at cambie hostel, Vancouver. Nice brown color, no special head. Average Aroma, very nice smooth taste. I enjoyed it.. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that disappears quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma is light malts and hops. Taste is malty sweet with some unflattering hop bitterness. Not one of the better cream ales out there and not recommended. Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
Enjoyed on cask at St. Augustine’s. A bit of carbonation here, just tapped cask. Some colour in the body and even a bit of red. Smooth, some flavour, Ok drinkability for a basic mild ale.Tad of hops and malt.Decent cask. northropfrye (3732) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 25, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2012 Malty and sweet. Reddish colour. Nothing too exciting here but not bad, either. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
341ml bottle from Pepper’s Pub in Saint John (they no longer carry Russel products). Light brown copper colour. Sweet caramel malts are pretty much the story here.
